During the springs 1981-1984, 154311+ and 420812+ smolts of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) from 12 different stocks were released at the mouth of the River Imsa, southwestern Norway. Two-year-old smolts gave higher total yields of adult salmon than one-year-olds. Smolts released in 1981 and 1982 gave higher yields than smalts released in 1983 and 1984. The proportion of salmon caught in the long-line fishery at the Faroes and in the northern Norwegian Sea was highest for the multi-sea-winter stocks and negligible for the grilse stocks. Due to high fishing pressure in the sea, the return-rate to the River Imsa was low. When correcting for tagging mortality and non-reported tags, the salmon ranching at Ims was on the average profitable for Norway , but not as a private enterprise.
